Hi.

I have been a Vonage customer since 10/27 with the PAP2.

I have a D-Link DI-624 wireless router. In many calls, mostly inbound it seems, the router reboots constantly.

I had the router replaced with a new one which also does similar reboots.

I got a loaner DI-634M which is experiencing worse reboots - I can't call my Vonage line as it reboots the router instantly losing the call.

How is that possible? How does the router reboot because of a connected LAN device like the PAP2?

What should I do next? Try a different brand of a wireless router? Could it be my Vonage PAP2 is somehow faulty?

PLEASE HELP!!!

So, if you don't hook up the Vonage device, the router never, ever reboots? (ie. does the router work perfectly without the Vonage device?)

Do you have any problems hooking the Vonage device directly to your modem? (ie. does the Vonage device work perfectly without the router?)

That's an odd one. How are you forwarding the ports to the Vonage device? Port triggering, port forwarding, or DMZ? Port forwarding and DMZ will probably put the least stress on your router.

You have the latest firmware in your router, I presume.

Thanks for the reply.

Very rarely (sometimes, every several days, sometimes over a week).
I already replaced the router and tried a new model, so I can't imagine the 3 routers (2 brand new) are faulty.

No, that works perfectly fine (was like that for about 3 days).

The PAP2 is in the DMZ.

Yes on the DI-634M, tried various firmwares on the DI-624 including the latest.

I think your problem may be the router. There was a lot of traffic on dslreports.com forums about the d-link router and i was having similar problems. The latest official firmware release was not a fix, but the beta release which can be accessed via their ftp site DID fix the problem. The version is 2.71beta.

ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Gateway/di624_revC/Firmware/

This seems to fix a number of reboot problems as well as some 802.1 authenticator issues.

Note, be careful, there are several different versions of the 624, this firmware is for "C" which only has one antenna.

There may be similar beta versions for other routers elsewhere but I haven't researched it. Again, this is not official code, use at your own risk, but it is working great in my 624C

OK, it sounds like your router has a problem. They should never, ever reboot. "Every several days" is what I would consider seriously unacceptable router performance to start with.

If your router is rebooting infrequently to start with, and adding Vonage makes it a lot more often, then your router has a problem and the extra traffic Vonage is introducing is making the problem worse, not introducing it. Vonage is the straw that broke the camel's back, but you already have a weak camel, apparently. Wink

My first gut reaction? Replace the router. And not with another DLink.

Are you using P2P (BitTorrent or other) that opens a lot of connections? If so, your best option is probably a Linksys WRT54G or WRT54GS, V4 or earlier, with third party firmware. You'll also get good QoS that way, which will give your Vonage priority bandwidth so your calls work better. If not, then you can use the default Linksys firmware and it will probably work fine, though the third party stuff seems a LOT better based on feedback here on the forum.

I don't personally have a WRT54G, but I'm fixin' to buy one based on huge amounts of positive comments here. You can also look into building a M0n0wall firewall if you have an old machine.

Net result, though, is that DLink doesn't seem to be giving you good routers. Based on what I've heard, that's not unusual. I have little personal experience with DLink, but I do know they are inexpensive, and you may just be getting what you pay for. No offense to you or to DLink intended.

I have tried that on the 1st DI-624C I had, not on the 2nd (I'll try that).

For the DI-634M there is no upgrade firmware and it still shows the reboots.

3 bad routers? And I have a friend with a DI-624 and Vonage that is not having problems.

Could I have gotten 3 'lemons' or could it be the Vonage PAP2 that needs to be replaced?

Does his DI-624 reboot several times a month without Vonage?

If they are rebooting without Vonage, then Vonage is not the problem. Vonage may be CONTRIBUTING to the problem by increasing the stress on the router, granted, but a decent quality router should *never, ever* reboot spontaneously.

- You might have had three lemons.
- You might have bad or unclean power going to the routers, and the Vonage adapter is increasing the load on an already stressed power circuit and making the problem worse.
- You might have a bad cable modem that's sending a signal to the router that it doesn't like.
- You might have a hacker attacking your router and stressing it near its limits, and the Vonage device is just adding to that load, or the DMZ setting is making it easier for him to get in (unlikely).

Net result - if your router cannot stand up on its own, without frequent reboots, then Vonage *will* make it happen more often. Vonage adds open ports and bandwidth use, and increases stress on your router. It sounds like your router has some problems, caused by bad local power, defects or insufficiencies within the router itself, or a hacker.

Take your router to your friend's house and have him test out yours for a week. If it doesn't reboot there, then you have bad power or your router doesn't like your cable modem, or you have hackers. Or maybe graemlins.

But the sumptoms of overstressing equipment are clear. I don't know the nature of the overstressing, but if it's failing without Vonage, then you have deeper problems...


The natural result of overstressing gear.
